Overview of the projects in the GCC region

  1. 1. GLOBAL STATUS OF CCS DEVELOPMENTBARRY JONES, General Manager, Policy and MembershipGlobal update on CCS and regional project perspectives, Doha, Qatar1 December 2012
  2. 2. ABOUT THE GLOBAL CCS INSTITUTE Accelerates the adoption of CCS, a key solution in mitigating climate change and providing energy security. Advocates for CCS as one of the options required to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from power generation and industrial sources. Shares information from its international Membership, while building capacity to ensure that CCS can become a widely- used technology as quickly as possible. Brings together projects, policy-makers and researchers to overcome the challenges facing CCS, ensuring a smooth and rapid roll-out of this vital technology.

  4. 4. THE GLOBAL STATUS OF CCS: 2012Key Institute publication  Released October 2012.  Comprehensive coverage on the state of CCS projects and technologies.  Progress outlined since 2011.  Challenges and recommendations for moving forward.
  5. 5. KEYMESSAGE ACTION IS NEEDED NOW TO ENSURE CCS CAN [1 [ PLAY A VITAL ROLE IN TACKLING CLIMATE CHANGE Energy-related CO2 emission reductions by technology SOURCE: IEA NOTE: Percentages represent share of cumulative emissions reductions to 2050. Percentages in brackets represent share of emissions reductions in the year 2050.
  6. 6. KEYMESSAGE CCS IS ALREADY CONTRIBUTING, [2 BUT PROGRESS MUST BE ACCELERATED [ 8 operating large scale CCS projects:  6 natural gas processing plants (Norway, Algeria, US)  1 fertiliser plant (US)  1 synthetic natural gas plant (Canada) 8 projects under construction (Execute):  2 electricity generation plants (US, Canada)  2 natural gas processing plants (US, Australia)  2 hydrogen plants (US, Canada)  1 fertiliser plant (Canada)  1 ethanol plant (US)
  7. 7. KEYMESSAGE CCS IS ALREADY CONTRIBUTING, [2 [ BUT PROGRESS MUST BE ACCELERATED Volume of CO2 potentially stored by large-scale integrated projects
  8. 8. KEYMESSAGE CCS IS ALREADY CONTRIBUTING, [2 [ BUT PROGRESS MUST BE ACCELERATED Volume of CO2 potentially stored by large-scale integrated projects
  9. 9. KEYMESSAGE CCS IS ALREADY CONTRIBUTING, [2 [ BUT PROGRESS MUST BE ACCELERATED Volume of CO2 potentially stored by large-scale integrated projects
  10. 10. KEYMESSAGE CCS IS ALREADY CONTRIBUTING, [2 [ BUT PROGRESS MUST BE ACCELERATED Volume of CO2 potentially stored by large-scale integrated projects
  11. 11. KEYMESSAGE STEADY PROGRESS BUT [3 IMPORTANT DEVELOPMENTS [ Large-scale integrated projects by asset lifecycle and year
  12. 12. GLOBAL DISTRIBUTION OF PROJECTS
  13. 13. KEYMESSAGE STEADY PROGRESS BUT [3 IMPORTANT DEVELOPMENTS [ Large-scale integrated projects by region and year
  14. 14. KEYMESSAGE STEADY PROGRESS BUT [3 IMPORTANT DEVELOPMENTS [ LSIPs by industry sector and year
  15. 15. KEYMESSAGE STEADY PROGRESS BUT [3 IMPORTANT DEVELOPMENTS [ Volume of CO2 potentially stored by primary storage type and region
  16. 16. KEYMESSAGE ENCOURAGING POLICY SUPPORT [4 [ BUT MORE REQUIRED  CCS in the CDM – positive development.  UK addressing Capex AND Opex.  European Commission NER300 program.  International standards for CCS under development. 16
  17. 17. KEYMESSAGE BARRIERS MUST BE OVERCOME [5 [ TO REALISE THE BENEFITS OF CCS  Storage site selection and characterisation remains a lengthy and costly process.  Public understanding of CCS remains low.  Need to bring down the costs of CO2 capture through technology developments and demonstration. 17
  18. 18. KEYMESSAGE REDUCING THE COST OF TECHNOLOGY [6 [ THROUGH DEMONSTRATION PROJECTS IS VITAL
  19. 19. KEYMESSAGE ACCELERATION OF CCS DEPENDS ON [7 [ COLLABORATION AND KNOWLEDGE SHARING  CCS faces difficult and time-consuming challenges.  Sharing knowledge gained is critical to accelerating the deployment of CCS.  Collaboration and effort is required to increase the intensity and scope of knowledge sharing activities.
  20. 20. WHAT IS HAPPENING IN THE MENA REGION??• The Middle East has some of the highest per capita emissions of CO2 in the world.• The region has a number of natural advantages including excellent storage potential and many opportunities for EOR.• Most work has been progressed in the UAE, Saudi Arabia, & Qatar.• In North Africa the In Salah project, operational since 2004, injected around 1 million tonnes/year of carbon dioxide and plays an important role in the research and development of storage monitoring techniques.
  21. 21. UAE PROJECTSAbu Dhabi CCS project is designed to capture about 6MtCO2/yr:• Taweelah Power Co (TAPCO): Post-combustion retrofit to extract CO2 from an IWPP project with a capacity of 2,000MW of power and 160 MIGD of desalinated water. Estimated CO2 capture of approx 1.2m tonnes a year.• Emirates Steel Industries (ESI): Capture of process CO2 from a dehydration and compression unit. Expected capture of approx 0.8m tonnes a year of CO2.• Emirates Aluminium (EMAL): Capture of process CO2 from an aluminium smelter. Expected capture of approx 2.5m tonnes a year of CO2.• Habshan: Collection of CO2 from an industrial scale gas separation plant. Expected capture of approx 0.6m tonnes a year of CO2.
  22. 22. RECOMMENDATIONS FOR DECISION MAKERS Climate change legislation must not be delayed. In order to achieve emission reductions in the most efficient and effective way CCS must not be disadvantaged. Funding for CCS demonstration projects should be accelerated. Expertise and learning must be shared.
